Child Care Subsidy at Guardian Childcare & Education South Melbourne
The Childcare Subsidy (CCS) is financial assistance to help with the cost of child care. Knowing how much CCS you are entitled to is important, because it helps you understand how much care you can access and what your out-of-pocket expenses will be.
We are here to help. We believe in forming strong, trusted relationships with families. Supporting you to get the most of out your CCS is just one of the ways we make it easier for families to choose the right partner for the care and education of your child.
Use our CCS calculator below to see your estimated entitlement.
